Appointments with Heaven by Dr. Reggie Anderson: A Book Review

This book had such compelling stories that I had a hard time putting it down.  Dr. Anderson is both a medical doctor and a great storyteller.  More importantly, his stories are about God and the Heaven that awaits those who place their hope in Him.

The author shares his personal story: from amazing childlike faith to unbearable family tragedy to unbelief to faith again.  Anyone who has wondered about or wandered from his/her faith can relate to this story.  He goes on to tell the stories of others who have faced death and heard from God.

Those who are acquainted with grief will find solace in Dr. Anderson's description of the peace that goes with the passing of a believer--a peace he has been privileged to witness often in his country medical practice.  Add to your understanding of God's eternal provision for His children both now and forever by reading this book.

I received a free review copy of Appointments with Heaven from Tyndale Publishers.
